Censorship in the People's Republic of China

Censorship in the [People's Republic of China] (PRC) is implemented or mandated by the PRC's ruling party, the [Communist Party of China] (CPC). The [special administrative region] s of Hong Kong and [Macau] have their own [legal] systems and are largely self-governing, so these censorship policies do not apply there.

Notable censored subjects include but are not limited to, [democracy] , the [Tiananmen Square protests of 1989] , [Falun Gong] , [Tibetan independence] , [Taiwan independence] , [police brutality] , [anarchism] , [pornography] , news sources that report on these issues, religious content, and many other websites.

Censored media include essentially all capable of reaching a wide audience including [television] , [print media] , [radio] , [film] , [theater] , [text messaging] , [instant messaging] , [video games] , [literature] and the [Internet] .

[Reporters Without Borders] ranks China's press situation as "very serious", the worst ranking on their five-point scale. China's Internet censorship policy is labeled as "pervasive" by the [OpenNet Initiative] 's global Internet filtering map, also the worst ranking used. [Freedom House] ranks the press there as "not free", the worst ranking, saying that "state control over the news media in China is achieved through a complex combination of party monitoring of news content, legal restrictions on journalists, and financial incentives for self-censorship."

Subject matter and agenda

Censorship in the PRC encompasses a wide range of subject matter. The agendas behind such censorship are varied; some are stated outright by the Chinese government itself and some are surmised by observers inside and out of the country.
